Show Notes
Based on our recent event Airlines, Highways and Airwaves, Prosper Policy Director Jesse Hermans joins Karl Fitzgerald to discuss the power of monopoly in the pandemic era. We discuss why monopolists should also be sharing in the pain of the pandemic and how governments could be ensuring this occurs before bailouts are requested.
